General Information for Sapphire
Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 580, Radeon RX 580, 8 GB, GDDR5, 256 bit, 5120 x 2880 pixels, PCI Express x16 2.0To continuous streamlining of FinFET 14 nm production process, the latest Polaris GPUs that power SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 cards are even more energy-efficient. This allowed SAPPHIRE to crank up the clocks and reach up to 10% better performance compared to previous series. To add even more headroom for overclocking. Factory overclocked cores of the standard SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 580 run with a 1411 MHz boost clock.
4th generation Graphics Core Next GPUs of the Radeon RX 500 Series feature improved geometry engine, new display engine, increased caches and native asynchronous shaders. Equipped with 2304 GCN-based stream processors, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 is the card to run modern games in 1080p and beyond, as well as deliver premium VR experiences.
In order to protect your card, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ series cards have fuse protection built into the circuit of the external PCI-E power connector to keep the components safe.
Precision fan control
Standard industry fans may have up to 10% difference between their fan rotation cycles (RPM). With the new Fan IC Control on SAPPHIRE NITRO + graphics cards, this differential is reduced to 3%. This 70% improvement on accuracy ensures that cooling and noise performance of every NITRO + card is up to scratch.
Robust VRM Cooling
The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ cards are designed with robust VRM cooling and have a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate to take away the heat efficiently and effectively.
Black Diamond Choke 4
Our Black Diamond Chokes are 10% cooler and 25% more power efficient than a normal choke - and these Mark 4 Chokes reduce the coil temperatures by other 15% over the Mark 3s.
These exclusive chokes will maintain gaming stability using their built-in heatsinks and help minimize coil whine
Dual Ball Bearing - 1.85X longer life
Dual ball bearings on the fan spindles ensure smooth running and long life and are designed to keep out dust. A quiet cooling solution, Two ball-bearing fan features a high-efficiency blade design.
Long life black polymer cap
High quality aluminum-made long life capacitor is not only to extend the component life time, the product reliability and overclocking ability are also improved. When operational temperatures dropped by 20C, the product life span is going to be extended up to a factor of ten. In addition, when the operational temperature increased by 20C, the product life span only decreased by 10%.
Nitro Glow 2
The graphics card is more than another component; its the beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it costs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card is practically a piece of art. You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIREs Award Winning Overclocking Utility TriXX 3.0. Users can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, PCB Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.
With NITRO+ models, SAPPHIRE has upped the stakes with its new Fan Check, which allows users to check the cooler's status via SAPPHIRE TriXX 3.0 software, and contact customer support in case of problems.
NITRO Quick Connect
SAPPHIREs Quick Connect System provides a quick and easy solution. If theres a fan issue detected, the user doesnt need to return the entire card SAPPHIREs partners will send out a replacement fan directly to the customer or the retailer. Please contact your place of purchase to request a fan replacement. SAPPHIREs channel partner will arrange the ideal solution for you to receive your replacement fan.
With the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards Intelligent Fan Control III, the fan starts precisely at 56 degrees Celsius to smartly balance performance against fan noise.
NITRO Free Flow
We looked at the traditional axial fan design system, and found that the way it circulates the hot air back to the fan inlet resulted in a higher temperature over time. With NITRO Free Flow (NFF) we redesigned the airflow of the entire cooler and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat.
The new NITRO Boost switch increases the boost clock and power limit for higher performance to unleash the gaming performance of the card.
Planning to overclock or looking for maximum performance? SAPPHRE NITRO cards come with an 8 pin power connector to plug in and enable Nitro Boost.
SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs.
These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.
The SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports, you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running at the same time.
The ports are HDMI 2.0b, the latest update, with an 18Gbps bandwidth, up to 32 audio channels, and is able to support 4K 50/60 resolutions like 2160P, whilst remaining entirely backwards compatible with older HDMI specifications.
Frame Rate Target Control
Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) enables users to set a target maximum frame rate when playing an application in full screen mode; the benefit being that FRTC can reduce GPU power consumption (great for games running at frame rates much higher than the display refresh rate) and therefore reduce heat generation and fan speeds/noise on the graphics card.
Frame Rate Target Control caps performance not only in 3D rendered in-game scenes, but also in splash screens, loading screens and menus, where frame rates can often run needlessly into the hundreds of FPS. Users might wish to set a very high cap just to limit wasteful FPS like that seen in menus and such, while still taking advantage of the responsiveness given by FPS well beyond 60.
AMD Freesync technology
No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming.
AMD FreeSync technology allows a compatible graphics card and monitor to dynamically change frame rates for the optimum display quality without tearing or stuay.
Freesync uses industry-standard displayport Adaptive-Sync Eliminates screen tearing without all the usual lag and latency
- Synchronizes the refresh rate of a compatible monitor to the frame rate of your content, however much it varies
- Monitor partners are validating with drivers from AMD now
AMD XConnect Technology
Plug in and game on with AMD XConnect technology.
Now its easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon graphics card. With AMD XConnect technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon Graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in 1 over Thunderbolt 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drivea first for external GPUs!
